Amazing

It's near from Brasília about 1 hour by car. You should pay about R$ 10 and enjoy a nice place. If you want, you might face a trail and see the waterfall from above.

1. The place opens at 9 am 2. Get there early, on the weekends it gets unpleasantly overcrowded after 11 AM 3. Visit the pool where the waterfall lands - its awesome. But the real treat is to ... 4.

Me and three friends travelled from Brasília to Salto de Itiquira, guided for a local friend who knew the region. What an amazing and relaxing day! Perfect pause from the urban life found in Brasília-DF. It was a Monday, so there was almost no one in the way to the park nor in the park/waterfall. It seemed to be a... More

More than 120 meters high, in the setting of a perfectly kept park, the foggy waterfall is not an adventure at all but is a pleasure for the senses. The bottom is very easy to reach. If you feel strong and adventurous, follow the trek to the top for the ultimate view! Before leaving, enjoy a recovering bath on the... More

We took a day trip from Brasilia to Itiquira falls which took us two hours to drive. There are lots of cameras and speed bumps (moles) so you can't drive fast. Thankfully the roads are paved and the Garmin took us right to the entrance to the falls. You pass orange groves and can buy 25+ lb bags or juicing... More
